Abstract : This report documents the results of the development, fabrication, and testing of two Angular Reference Systems consisting of two Dual Axis Rate Transducers, one Three-Axis Angular Accelerometer, and the associated electronics required to provide the outputs of angular rate and angular rate summed with angular acceleration about three orthogonal axes. Prototype Angular Accelerometers and electronics were fabricated and integrated with two-axes rate gyros to provide the Angular Reference System for VTOL stabilization. (Author)
